Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform
Doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030 is an underlying target of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7).
In 2014, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) launched the Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform to help realize this objective. It does so by driving action and commitments by national and sub-national leaders at the country, city, state, region or sector level. The platform defines common elements between each of its accelerators, such as governance, performance metrics, reporting requirements, commitment management, policies, resources and tools as well as public and private sector financial support.
The individual accelerators focus on specific energy efficiency sectors such as buildings, lighting, appliances, district energy systems, industry and transportation.
The Energy Efficiency Hub Secretariat is hosted by the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2). The Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency is dedicated to accelerating the uptake of energy efficiency policies and programs on a global scale.
The Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) is supporting SEforALL’s energy efficiency initiatives through its “Energy Efficiency Facilitating Hub,” which shares energy efficiency technologies with partner organizations around the world.
